When the news of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s split made headlines, fans were heartbroken. But everyone was shocked when the Aquaman actress accused Depp of alleged domestic violence. The actor was taken aback by these accusations and soon, it turned into a legal battle.
The Blast had earlier shared some text message conversations that happened between Amber Heard’s parents Paige and David with Johnny Depp. In these messages, Heard’s mother tells the actor that their daughter filed the legal documents because her lawyers told her to do so. On May 27, 2016, Paige reportedly texted Depp, “It’s the lawyers on both sides doing this not Amber. I heard the whole story very teary – if I could just talk to Johnny. She didn’t want this. Friggin lawyers on BOTH sides!! This was not her idea, not her wishes. She was told she would be evicted and out in 30 days if she did not do this.”
She continued, “Her dumb lawyer possibly as the only way she would have a place to live in 30 days. She DID NOT want to do this I swear to you. The lawyers are frigging things up.” To this, Johnny Depp responded, “if she didn’t want to file a restraining order against me and send a message to the world that I am some kind of violent wife beater …then why would she go to the courthouse with a photo of her that looks like she’s been abused??? this is my life too, what are my children and my children’s friends supposed to think??? I do not deserve this, and they do not deserve this… especially not from her.”
Paige kept telling Johnny Depp that the lawyer told her and that’s why Amber Heard went with the photo. She also told the actor to not pass on their messages to Amber. “Her lawyer told her she had to and she had to today. That’s why she wanted to talk to you. We didn’t talk so please never bring this up. But I’ll swear to you this was not her idea nor did she do it willingly or happily. She was told it was her ONLY option to not being kicked out. I’m not making excuses but that is what she believed. She did not want to do it. She felt she was betraying her only love but the lawyers said so. Please don’t pass this on if you ever talk to Amber again. I love you, son,” read the message sent by Paige.
Johnny also texted Amber Heard’s dad, David. The actor sent, “Amber is calling this domestic violence!!! she submits a picture that says I threw the phone at her!!! she is putting herself in deep trouble if she continues to perjure herself… I have done nothing to deserve this!!! this is so f***ing sick. i have 2 witnesses who were in the room when she said that i flung the phone at her. ABSOLUTE F***ING LIE!!! she wants a divorce, she gets it. but the world will receive the truth and if she is caught perjuring herself (which she will)”
To this, Mr. Heard replied, “The lawyer told her she had to or she would have no place to live in 30 days.”
This reply angered Johnny Depp who wrote to Amber Heard’s father, “that is absolute bulls***!!! HER LAWYER ASKED FOR TWO WEEKS at the downtown place… AND I SAID, “NO”!!! SHE COULD STAY THERE AS LONG AS SHE LIKED!!! WHY WOULD I FORCE HER OUT IN 2 WEEKS??? I AIN’T NO SCUMBAG!!!” dude, my f***ing wedding ring is still on me!!! i has not taken it off, because i love her… it is coming off now. what a fucking knife to the back, i’m so disappointed and so hurt… it’s just too much… x… later, brother…feel better!!!
